SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Through an intriguing cross-examination of different art forms and mediums, we discover some fascinating insights into the creative process and becoming terrific artists.  When we cut through the crap and the complications we convince ourselves of, the basics are always forgotten and the basics are always what makes or breaks our work.

POINT #1: “WHAT IS THAT EVEN?”
 Before you get caught up in the little details or even really start thinking about them, a picture of the whole has to be formed, communicated, or made tangible in some way.  Often the little details can become trivial, meaningless or even detrimental when not viewed in perspective of the whole.

POINT #2: “IT’S ALL ABOUT THE LAYERS”
– Once you have a basic outline, which isn’t going to look like much, now there’s room to play.  Now you have the room to refine, sculpt, finesse and discover the little details.  When you embrace this whole process, the most simple of ideas can become a magnum opus.

POINT #3: “CUTTING THROUGH”
– 
We like to overcomplicate things.  There’s no need to.  Start simple.  Make that simple as great as it can be.  The core things are the most important things that make the biggest difference in the end.  Practice, embrace and enjoy being basic.
